Whispers of the Dead (Special Tracking Unit #2) Reviews
Whispers of the Dead is the 2nd book in the Special Tracking Unit series. I loved the first book, Collecting the Dead, so I was excited to read this book. This book did not disappoint. Such a unique plot with great characters. It pulled me in from the beginning and held my interest throughout the story.

It is now official - Spencer Kope is one of my favorite authors. Last year I read his first book, "Collecting the Dead," and declared it one of the best books I read in 2017. I just finished "Whispers of the Dead" and believe, even this early in the year, that this will be one of favorites in 2018. FBI agent and tracker extraordinaire Magnus "Steps" Craig is back with his partner Jimmy Donovan in another nail-biting thriller as they try to find the evil force behind the latest string of murders. ...more
I hope Mr Kope has started on his next book and that he continues this series. I could hardly put this down, same as "Collecting the Dead." Awesome. Please don't stop!
I really like this series. It’s a great crime/thriller series, the characters are funny, somewhat quirky, and even relatable. The story lines haven’t been too predictable and there are some cool aspects of these FBI trackers. And both of the books have been very clean for this genre!
would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for letting me read this intriguing book

series of bizarre murders, the victims nearly unidentifiable, forces “Steps” Craig to match wits with the most cold-blooded killer he’s ever encountered.
A pair of severed feet, stored in a portable ice chest—a cooler—is found in the house of a Federal judge in El Paso. The victim is unknown and unidentifiable. The reason the killer went to such trouble—breaking into the judge’s house—and what message he intends to send are both mysteries.

I love the unusual concept of being able to see a killer and victim's aura, or "shine" as Magnus calls it to track a killer and bring him to justice.
In this case, as you learn the circumstances that turns a normal, caring person into a serial killer you may find yourself sympathizing with him and understanding why he did what he did.
The ending is a nail biter and I anxiously await the next one in this remarkable series.
I admit that I wasn’t sure for the first few pages whether I’d even finish the chapter, much less the book. There was something about Steps, the main character, that I just couldn’t warm to. He seemed too odd, his language too formal, his relationship with his partner just too weird. But I read a few more pages - and then I was hooked.
